What’s sprouting in your life that you haven’t noticed?

I hate to admit that I didn’t know these sweet potatoes were growing. Ugh! When I found them, they looked like a forgotten science experiment—except for the fact that my kids are grown and gone.

Lord, please shine the spotlight of your Spirit in my heart, and show me what needs to go.
